Wedding Gifts Ideas

I LOVE useful gifts, 
and when I look at a wedding registry, 
I always end up in the kitchen stuff.
Maybe because I like to cook, maybe because they have signed up for things that I use myself and find it useful and necessary.
Either way, I end up buying those gifts.
Lately I have been going the extra step to add something "homemade" that I know will be special to the couple.
I call it 

intentional gifts.
The bride has traveled to Italy several times, and loves Italy.
(who wouldn't?)
So I asked her what is her favorite Italian city (or cities).
Then I got to work.
I made a set of napkins 
and a couple of towels, all to be added to a "kitchen theme" basket.
(Also I am finishing a wooden project that will be part of the gift as well).
Since lately I have been into numbers, I searched for meaningful years related to those specific cities.
Obviously for the Verona napkins set, 
I HAD to add the year in which Romeo and Juliette was published. Thank you Shakespeare!
In the name of LOVE.
Stay Frugal,

Oh my! Who wouldn't love a personalized gift like this. It will never be forgotten. That's the kind of gifts I love to give as well, even when there are registries. For babies showers, I usually try to make something especially for the baby. Love this set!
